The judges and their questionable “out of control” hyper behavior in
all the three shows is driving the public bananas. In Indian Idol, both
Annu Malek and Alisha behave as if they are fighting some personal
battle on the sets. On top of it, Annu Malek’s "I-Know-Best"
attitude towards all other judges makes things look in real bad light
at times. Alisha never criticizes while Udit Narayan seems to be too
obsessed with the words “Kintu, Parantu”. It’s yet to be figured out
from “Mr.Udit but Kintu Parantu’s” comments, that who according to him
has the potential to become the Indian Idol as almost all the
contestants have got this comment from him. Among the judges of this
show, the one who never falls into any controversy and always gives the
right comment for the contestants is Mr.Javed Akhtar. It could be
better, if we get to hear some "sher" from him instead of Annu
This very “I-Know-the-Best” attitude is actually shown by every judge
in SVOI. And giving fewer points to the other group participants, so
that his or her own group participant is safe, is another Eyesore.
These attitudes are leading to some really bitter fights on the sets.
Infact on Saturday, one celebrity guest Preeti Jhangiani wished that
there would be less explosive fireworks. One very disappointing fact is
the disparity in comments they all are following. Every other day they
themselves are contradicting the comments they made in the previous
episodes. How do the contestants then know which advice they need to
follow if the advice provided to them changes with every episode?
SRGMP judges are on the other hand are becoming experts in creating
dramas. If from this round Trishanku format of elimination has been
removed, then Himesh seems to have decided to keep the
Trishanku_Love_Story alive in the contest. Ismail Durbar never has any
extra advice for the contestants even though he may comment that there
were some drawbacks in the performance. Unless these drawbacks are
pointed out to them, how do they then rectify them? And what to say
about Bappida – he just can’t get over the low notes errors he finds in
every contestant. Vishal Shekhar, probably were the best till now, who
always encouraged the contestants, irrespective of their gharana. But
now, the hype for Mauli can be seen with this duo too. It was strange
to see all the mentors pick one contestant name from their gharana and
boast of him or her as champion of the gharana. Now what happened to
the rest? Can’t they be seen? They were perhaps some of the better
performers this week.
It’s high time we start rating the performances of the judge’s. And
when we went on to give points to these judges; this is what the
Point-Graph had to show:
